It may seem distinctly low-tech compared to some of the many technology trends I write about, but 3D and 4D printing will have very wide applications – and could be particularly powerful when combined with other trends like mass personalization.
In this article, I look at some of the surprising things that can now be created with 3D printers. What Can 3D Printing Be Used For?
Here Are 10 Amazing Examples Adobe Stock How does 3D printing work? 3D printing (also known as “additive manufacturing”) involves creating a 3D object from a digital file, building it up layer by layer. So, if you were to slice a finished 3D printed object open, you’d be able to see each of the thin layers, a bit like rings in a tree trunk. Before printing anything, you need a 3D model of the object you’re trying to create. The computer model is […]
